ABSTRACT

The research aims to educational technology for microscopic concept of virtual physics laboratory (VPL) on the concept of heat transfer. Heat transfer is one of the concepts in physics that is often considered difficult by students because it contains abstract and microscopic concepts. This is exacerbated by not conducting experimental activities, therefore the media is needed in the form of virtual labs that can visualize the process of heat transfer microscopically. This research method is research and development using Phases of the 4-D model which includes 4 Phases: defining, design, developing and disseminating. VPL media that has gone through the Phases of validation and revision, then through the testing phase is limited to 60 students. The results of VPL media expert obtained an average value of 87,50 % with a very good category, results of VPL content expert obtained an average value of 84.44 % with a very good category, and the results of Test were limited to students obtaining an average score of 86 % with a very good category. It can be concluded that the learning media developed in the form of VPL can visualize the process of microscopic heat transfer that can be used in physics learning.
